Watch Paxton Lynch Cry On Sideline After Exiting Raiders-Broncos Game

Denver Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch has waited a long time to get back into an NFL game.

However, Lynch’s return to the starting role Sunday didn’t quite go as planned.

A first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Lynch has appeared in just three games since entering the league. And although he started Sunday’s fight-filled game against the Oakland Raiders, he left during the third quarter after suffering an ankle injury.

As you’ll see in the clip below, Lynch got pretty emotional about it.

OK, we don’t want to make fun of someone for crying, but Lynch looks an awful lot like a Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest competitor when he cries.

That will never not be disgusting.

Either way, let’s hope the University of Memphis product doesn’t miss an extended period of time. Not just because he’s still pursuing his dream, but also because no one — especially Broncos fans — enjoys watching Trevor Siemian play quarterback.
